    It's Your World (a broadcast of the World Affairs Council) An Elusive Peace: North Korea and the International Community In December 2011, the young and inexperienced Kim Jong Un became the new Supreme Leader of North Korea, inheriting a nation beset by famine, poverty, and isolation abroad. Despite early hopes of reform, Kim quickly went on to test a nuclear weapon, purge and/or execute top officials in his government, conduct ballistic missile tests, and provoke border skirmishes in the region. Moreover, the release of the U.N.'s Commission of Inquiry on Human Rights in North Korea report in March 2014 called unprecedented attention to the ongoing human rights and humanitarian abuses in the country. In this program we hear from experts focused on human rights and international security who examine the challenges posed by North Korea and consider what the international community can do.

    Former AIG Sues U.S. Government Over Its Bailout -- It's been more than six years since the financial crisis, but the litigation carries on. Maurice "Hank" Greenberg, AIG's former CEO, is suing the U.S. government over the terms of the company's $85 billion emergency bailout. Greenberg, who was not CEO at the time but was a major stakeholder, says the terms of the loan amount to an unconstitutional seizure of private property.

    City Arts & Lectures Marina Abramovic Born in Yugoslavia, Marina Abramovi is a pioneer in the world of performance art. Throughout a career that has spanned five decades, her body has been both her subject and her medium. In early works like Rhythm 10, her very first performance, Abramovi played a Russian game in which one rhythmically jabs a knife in between splayed fingers. She recorded the process and repeated it exactly, even including instances where she cut herself. The experience led her to consider the performers' consciousness, and that theme, along with bodily pain, physical limitations and intentions, and the relationship between artist and audience are formative elements in all her work. In 2010, she was the subject of a major retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art in New York entitled "The Artist is Present." A team of trained artists were enlisted to "play" Abramovi in various past performance roles, while Abramovi herself sat at a small table where visitors to the museum waited turns to sit across from her. Her life, and that exhibit in particular, were portrayed in the feature length documentary, "Marina Abramovi: The Artist is Present" which made its premiere in January 2012 at the Sundance Film Festival. The Marina Abramovi Institute was founded by Marina Abramovi and will serve as her legacy and homage to time-based and immaterial art.
